Re-arrange the red and blue balls in the check board in such a way that no two balls of same color falls in the same row horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

There is a bag which have 21 blue balls and 23 red balls. You also have 22 red balls outside the bag.

Randomly remove two balls from the bag.
* If they are of different colors, put the blue one back in the bag.
* If they are the same color, take them out and put a red marble back in the bag.

Repeat this until only one marble remains in the bag.

What is the color of the sole marble left in the bag ?

Can you arrange the numbers from 1 to 9 on a tic tac toe board in a manner that the numbers in each row, column and diagonal adds up to 15. Remember that you have to use all the 9 numbers and thus you cannot repeat.

Fill in the matrix, in such a way that the sum of the numbers in each row (horizontally, vertically, and diagonally) is 264, even if you hold the matrix upside down. You are only allowed to use the digits 1, 6, 8, and 9, and each number may appear only once in the matrix.
